Today has been positively the worst day of the winter so far, (alright it is still officially autumn, but believe me you wouldn't have guessed it here today).
My hair appointment is always on a Thursday at 1pm and I drove down in the pouring rain. When I came out I even went in the car the three hundred yards or so to the supermarket because of the heavy rain. Luckily I found a place right outside the shop (it was so wet that there were few people around). The one good thing was that the supermarket was virtually empty, so I could wander round at my leisure and collect the few things I wanted.
The man in front of me in the checkout queue was so frazzled that he left his bank card in the machine. The woman on the checkout ran out after him but really couldn't remember what he looked like (neither could I) so she just had to put it in a safe place and hope he realised and came back for it.
Arriving home, the farmer had lit the wood burner and we spent the rest of the afternoon sitting by it -him reading the paper and doing the brain exercise page- me continuing to knit. When I have finished this baby cardigan I will put photographs of them all on here to show how busy I have been. (Only three weeks to go now).
Off back to the warmth now. It has finally stopped raining but I can't see a single star so it must still be cloudy.
